Last week's survey results...

  • I sold my business after 11 successful and profitable years. And I'm glad I did and for doing it at the right time - as I was no longer enjoying the business as much as when I used to. Selling opened up for me other opportunities.

  • Definately not. When we first started 15 years ago, everything was a learning curve & exciting. Machinery advances & new techniques meant there was always something "fresh" happening. While we have grown & diversified our services alot over the years there really hasn't been any BIG changes from when we started except that machinery has got faster...

    So if you don't love it, please leave and do something else so someone who cares can get on with it.

  • Hell yeah, that's why Signwriting is such a great job! Every day has a new challange and every sign is different. ( as well as the customers! even after 25 years of doing it )

  • Working in a "Safety-Sign-Only-Signshop" drove me nuts, I felt like a human photocopy machine. I went back to having my own business because I love designing. Race cars, Wraps, paint, air-brush & 3D fabricated sign give me a reason to go to work!

  • Times have changed, the industry has changed over the past 30 years. With change comes new technologies, new opportunities, new techniques, new challenges, new issues to overcome. When I first started my business name/company we were all still true artistic sign writers. You created a persons signs using your skills, artistic talent, flair, with very little to no technological input or reliance on technology. I must admit that the personal satisfaction you achived by truely crafting a persons sign with your own hands and seeing the delight and wonder on the clients face when you finished/installed was very rewarding and the fun factor was much higher. However change is growth and with change we also must refocus our energies and creative ideas to where they are needed now. I find the industry now more competitive, greater stress, a greater reliance on technology with redefined personal skill levels. All that said, it can still be fun and you can still have a great sense of achievement. It is only the game that has changed and with that the direction, vision and goals. The goal posts may have moved, so move with them or redefine them. (Steve Baker Signs Pty Ltd, Steve Baker)

  • No. Customers have become too demanding and many too finicky wanting jobs 'yesterday' and too many changes even though they make the original specifications. Also, the 'cowboys' are not helping with cost cutting and 'rough' jobs.

  • NO. It so boring compared to how the sign industry used to be... Harder to make a living out of it and it only seems to get harder as each year passes. I guess we are lucky that we still do get some fun jobs, but vinyl and printing has pretty much taken over and your just competing for best price.

  • No, it is far harder now than ever, with so much pressure, smaller business has to compete with larger business but it always appears that the larger organisations get all the government and public sector work, leaving us to pick up the crumbs.

  • Of course. I'm now 72 and can't imagine not having my printing business to keep me occupied during the week. Always something new to learn and contacts to be made...and I can look forward to a really nice holiday every year. My advice: don't retire too early, I've seen what's happened to a lot of my mates .... and it's not pretty! Cheers

  • Good question! Many trade people start out creating a business working in what they love to do, then once they start in the business they go from, " doing what they love to do - making stuff, to the process of doing what they rarely like to do - managing stuff. In Michael Gerber's book " the eMyth" he details the phenomena. Even in the 30+ years we spent building our sign company I went through the same dilemma. My experience since I have been consulting ( 14 years) for many highly creative sign people is they do struggle getting a balance between business and life and often throw in the towel, because they no longer enjoy the 'business of making signs" It is a very complex process if you in a general sign manufacturing area, specialists do it a bit easier. I would suggest looking at your systems and work towards improving, simplifying the management process - usually quote bring many undone. If you spend less time managing the business and more time making signs and the work you enjoy - well, normally sign people will enjoy the work more! There are many options, gov't web sites, business consultants ( like us) and associations all offer simple pathways unseen by many who are overwhelmed with the day to day hassle of business.

  • After 11 years, I would have to say no. I am starting to plan my exit, the fun has gone from it.

Wullie McTavish


Edinburgh man Wullie McTavish is on his deathbed, knows the end is near, is with the nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons.

"So", he says to them: "Bernie, I want you to take the Braid Hills houses."
"Sybil, take the flats over in Morningside and Bruntsfield."

"Tam, I want you to take the offices in Charlotte Square ."

"Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings in the New Town."

The nurse is just blown away by all this, and as Wullie slips away, she says,

"Mrs. McTavish, your husband must have been such a hard working man to Have accumulated all this property".

Sarah replies, "Property? ... the bugger has a paper round!"
